Choosing a college is a big decision, and locations vary widely. While some students prefer the serenity of a “traditional college town,” others find that urban colleges and universities offer the educational amenities and the city excitement that together create a unique college experience.
In the heart of New York City is a public college that has been attracting students for more than 140 years. Hunter College offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in more than 170 different disciplines.
Choosing to attend Hunter College allows you to join the diverse population of students who attend the vibrant City University of New York (CUNY) and who want to enjoy life in the city while gaining a top rate education.
With more than 23,000 enrollees, Hunter College is a haven for young people who want to live and study in Manhattan. The school is attractive to bright and artistic young adults who thrive on the opportunity to earn degrees in art, film, music, dance, and theatre, but also has a growing reputation for scientific research and excellent programs for those interested in health professions. In 2012, the university announced a partnership with Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for a new nursing, science, and health professions building on the Hunter College campus.
With a campus stretching along the Upper East Side of Manhattan, housing can be quite expensive. The Office of Residence Life provides just three residence halls on campus and receives far more requests than it can fill. So, with limited student housing at Hunter College, only a small percentage of students can actually live on campus so many opt for housing near Hunter College instead. Many choose to live in Gramercy Park, the East Village, Union Square, the Flatiron District, or the Lower East Side, with StuyTown offering a great option with easy access to all train lines.
